The days are getting longer in Seattle, the flowers are emerging, and everything outside is gorgeous. Maybe you just took a trip here, or you’re spending some extra time exploring your city. Yes, it’s good to have experiences whether or not you’re taking photos, but sometimes, you’re doing it for the ‘gram.
Either way: You might want to keep your Instagram followers posted with something more interesting than the Space Needle, even if it does have that cool glass floor now.
We’ve mapped 15 spots to get some double-tap worthy Instas, from urban backdrops to watery landscapes to skyline views. Some of these are just really incredible murals, including a collection of very good dogs in a Belltown dog park. A couple you may know already, even if not by name, like the iconic view from Kerry Park. Looking for some architectural prestige? Try the brutalist Freeway Park fountain.
These aren’t all clustered around downtown, though. There are infinite jaw-dropping photo ops at Kubota Garden to the south, or head north to Carkeek Park for views, beach, and trains, all right next to each other.
And even if you’re not keeping your social media updated, maybe bring a camera along to these locations—just for yourself.
Map points are ordered north to south.Read More
